the president over this and federal court to run into timber. and the obama administration appealed. what was fascinating as they went to the judge catherine after she gave her decision and the 112 page opinion which is a brilliant kind of deception on the destruction of the separation of powers and is worth reading and asked for an emergency stay meaning they wanted it back into the fact until the court would hear the case. she refused and they demanded an emergency hearing with the appellate court at 9 a.m. in the morning the next monday for an emergency hearing and an emergency stay which they got. the wally reason that i and the lawyers can make out that the obama administration reacted so aggressively is because they are already using it and probably on the pakistani u.s. gold nationalism. the inability to curb wall street, a close examination of the obama health care bill which was written by the corporate lobbyists and particularly with valor who worked for bachus and is now back into the industry. the inability to deal with those of the most important crisis that is confronting a
administration has stepped up the use of drones overseas to target suspected terrorists. president obama's nomination of john brennan to be the next cia director suggests that trend is likely to continue. brennan, a strong proponent of drones as the president's chief counterterrorism advisor. for more on how the u.s. drone program works let's get to chief washington correspondent james rosen. he is live for us at the state department. james? >> reporter: jon, good morning. this program presents a consistent headache for the diplomats in this building and who must frequently contend with complaints from afghan and pakistani officials who say these drones all too often wind up killing innocent civilians instead of terrorists the drone program is one of the national security initiatives that president obama inherited from the bush administration and one which the current commander-in-chief has dramatically expanded. for all his criticism of president bush during the 2008 campaign over his conduct of the war on terror president obama has largely kept in place if not enhanced the architecture

chairman of the committee is saying, they want a response from the obama administration to this latest demand being made by president morsi as he gets ready to visit the united states and we presume make this demand face-to-face with our president. >> yeah, the new chairman, mike mccall, is definitely following up on this. i know last september when the issue first came up, i was demanding answers from the administration and never really got them. what they said they had no plans to release him. they never out and out denied it and what i'm saying is that the president of egypt is bringing this to a presidential level then the president of the united states should state clearly, unequivocally that morsi will die in an american prison. that's the way to give it, not lawyer-like answers, not say there are no plans, not say there are have been no discussions, but come right out and say it because i know that the main reason i was raising this issue last fall. a number of people in federal law enforcement came to me and said they had reason to believe that this was being planned. at least
to succeed timothy geithner as treasury secretary. lew's already part of the obama administration. he is currently the white house chief of staff. he was also budget director during the obama and clinton administrations. now if lew is confirmed, you may be thrown for a loop when you look at a five or ten-dollar bill literally. look at this sort of a doodle here. believe it or not, this is lew's signature. the treasury secretary's signature appears on the front of paper money, as we know. you could very well see that on newly printed money. perhaps, though, he'll take the lead from his predecessor, timothy geithner's signature was a tad bit messy, you see there. he cleaned it up when he became treasury secretary. >>> the president also looking for a new labor secretary. hilda solis resigned yesterday. she will likely return home to california and run for a seat on the los angeles county board of supervisors. three cabinet members will stay on the job for the president's second term. they are attorney general eric holder, health and human services secretary kathd lean sebelius -- kathle
. >> reporter: jeff duncan sharply challenged the obama administration saying the founding fathers never envisioned executive orders being used to restrict our constitutional rights. we live in a republic, not dictatorship. since last month's newtown massacre, president obama has called for reinstating an assault weapons ban and limiting high capacity magazines. in new york, democratic governor andrew cuomo was fired up, demanding a strict new crackdown on guns. >> no one hunts with an assault rifle. no one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer and too many innocent people have died already. and the m end the madness now. >> reporter: gun safety isn't the only issue at the president's agenda now. and the vice president will be meeting with members of the nra. at the white house, the president will be introducing his nominee to be the next treasury secretary, jack lew, presently the president's chief of staff. you see him on your screen, formerly the president's budget director replacing out-going secretary timothy geithner and another position has to be filled, the position being vacated by th

kind of language is not acceptable to the nra that view this is as a call to arms. the obama administration said legislatively the strategy will be to try to isolated nra and you can pick off republicans and get the cooperation. i'm a little skeptical that in the house they will get votes for anything that smacks of gun control. i wonder, what i'm sensing is if there ends up being a compromise, it will center around mental health. is that your sense? >> my sense is they are going to clothe whatever they are going to try to do with as many other issues and topics as possible. video games and culture of violence and mental health care, et cetera for whatever gun control proposals there may be. that's going to be the approach. the problem that the president has and that some democrats have is they talked to the people who run their campaigns. they talked to people who want to run in red states. they have got to be careful, they are hold not to go too far because the last thing they want to do is saddle candidates with what can be described as anti-gun positions. kentucky in 2o 1
limit jam. and the current cap on the government borrowing is at $16.4 trillion. the obama administration says that the only solution for the problem is for congress to raise that debt ceiling. >>> some bloggers are online and they believe they have the answer to the nation's debt ceiling crisis that the treasury should simply mean a $1 trillion platinum coin. keep it in reserve, then use the money to pay bills. others say it is not realistic as far as being approached to the solution. you may have seen her and her sister marianne around becoming local staples after moving to the bay area from michigan more than four decades ago. they are unmistakable. that's after they fell ill in july. vivian brown would have turned 86 later this month. >>> and brushing your pet's teeth may seem like a difficult task. up next why it is important, much more important than what you think. >>> a surprise for the fast food drivers. no driver to be found. we'll be right back. >>> we've got a forecast that will bring a chill to your heart and to have everythin
they believe that the obama administration is less interested in protecting children and more interested in attacking the second amendment. so the nra says that the white house is set on blaming the actual weapon rather than getting tougher on the person using it. here's some of that. >> we feel very strongly that gun crime needs to be prosecuted vigorously and that is not happening under this administration. the president and the vice president on the other hand blame everything on firearms, and we know enough and we've got a little experience with firearms and what works and what doesn't work, to think that what they're talking about is essentially cosmetic feel-good legislation that will not prevent another newtown, much as they would like to do that. martha: there is that as background here. chris wallace joins me right now, anchor of "fox news sunday." good morning, chris. good to have you with us. >> good morning to you, martha. martha: i want to listen joe biden as well and listen closely what he said. everyone is trying to figure out this morning what the white house can accompli
over this in federal court. i won in september and the obama administration appealed. [applause] what was fascinating is to they went to judge katherine forest after she gave her technician if -- her decision and her 112- page opinion which is really a brilliant kind of dissection of the destruction of the separation of powers and is worth reading, asked for an emergency stay meaning they wanted the law put back into effect physical the appellate court would hear the case. some he refused. -- she refused. they demanded an emergency hearing with the appellate court at 9:00 a.m. if the morning the next monday for an emergency hearing and an emergency stay which they got. the only reason that i and the lawyers can make out is that the obama administration reacted so aggressively is because they're already using it, probably on pakistani u.s. dowel nationals. the inability to curb wall street, a close examination of the obama health care bill which was written by corporate lobbyists, in particular ms. -- liz fowler who has gone back into the industry. the inability to deal with the most i
during the bush administration and, frankly, with the drone wars of the obama years. >>> and then politics loses one of its best biographers, well, ever. saying good-bye to richard ben kramer, a man who knew what it takes better than anybody. >>> good morning from washington. it's tuesday, january 8th, 2013. this is "daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. my first reads of the morning. chuck hagel's nomination has set up a tough, new political fight for the white house. a fight president obama signaled he's ready to have over the plain spoken vietnam veteran. >> willingness to speak his mind, even if it wasn't popular. even if it defied the conventional wisdom. that's exactly the spirit i want on my national security team. >> under fire for his past statements about israel and iran. hagel is now speaking out. told his hometown newspaper "lincoln journal star." the distersions about my record have been astounding. once voicing opposition to unilateral sanctions on iran, hagel says while he was "hanging out there in no man's land unable to respond to charges, falsehoods and i
and they said the obama and clinton administration had 43% compared to the bush administration which had a 33% rate. so obviously things for women are improving. >> that's what they say. and there's another picture that ran in the "new york times" todays. i'm not sure if we have it but there's a picture -- there it is. there's a picture that ran in the "new york times" today. again, another visual that the white house doesn't like. if you look closely, wolf, there's a leg there in front of the president's desk and that's valerie's leg. that's a really important leg because she's a key adviser to the president. she has his ear and she is the first among equals in many circles. so that is a visual they didn't like but they point out valerie jarrett in that picture. to me the question is, do they listen to the women? they have. we have some evidence that they do and we have some evidence that they haven't. >> i know the president listens to valerie jarrett. you can argue she alone is worth four or five of those men. >> that's what bothers them, by the way. >> she has a lot of influence. she's ve
've got to do it themselves. >> there's a new article and it asks this question, the obama administration says it is considering leaving no troops in afghanistan after december 2014. but is it really? or is it just decreasing expectations and using the threat as a pressure tactic ahead of president obama's meeting with afghan president hamid karzai? do you think that's what's going on? >> i think there's some gamesmanship in that regard but most people in the administration frankly most people, think it's wise to keep some troops there. the issue will come down to mission. do you want to just keep troops who will do a counter terrorism mission, is that going to be okay with the afghans? or will they want that to be but tresed by some sort of training or budget support? at this point, the afghan military is going to cost more money than the country has to spend. so i think very high on karzai's agenda is continuation of security assistance in the form of budget support. >> and let's look at the possible scenario of leaving afghanistan completely after 2014. what would we be leaving behind?

saying the obama administration needs to stop focusing solely on guns and gun owners. >> we wish instead of talking about guns specifically, that t they would have addressed what will we do in the future. what will we do about a broken mental health system that allows people potentially violent to be on the streets? >> and a liberal think tank weighing in for the first time shall the center for american progress announcing it's joining a full scale campaign to push for more gun control laws. >> the organizations will be working to work in the states, and ensure at that we have the voice and really have the american people and really gun owners who listen to the proposals, their voices at the table as well. >> harris: all of this in the wake of a week long series of meetings hosted by the vice-president as he puts together a plan to curb violence, he says. we expect that plan to be officially presented to the white house on tuesday. our peter doocy with the news live for us in washington. and peter, after all of this task force and that information coming together. do you have any indica
